I’ll be leaving for my once-a-year trip to Arlington, TX for Retropalooza on Friday. A retro video game convention, where nerds and geeks can get together and enjoy sharing the same interests.

This will be my third year going. Each year I enjoy it more and more. The people you meet are just there to have fun, just like you are. The guests are popular Youtubers that either play video games or discuss video games in general.

As always I’m going to be bringing plenty of reading materials, both ebooks and audiobooks. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get back into the swing of things by the time I get back!

Thanks for everything guys, I know it’s taking me a while to get back to reviewing. I appreciate your patience.

Retropalooza in Arlington, TX


There’s a convention that I’ve been annually going to since 2016, and it’s called Retropalooza. They host one convention in Houston, TX as well as Arlington, TX. This year they made the attempt to spread out into San Antonio, TX but plans changed. However, there’s always next year!

This year I’ll be going to Arlington, TX (hopefully) to go hang out with other video game fans like myself. It’s so fun to be in an inviting environment where people cosplay and just hang out with their friends, or meet new ones.

The YouTuber panels are the ones I look forward to the most, I make a list of my favorites that I’d like to meet.

I’ve met Jirard Kahlil AKA “The Completionist”.

I’ve met Alex Faciane from The Dex and Super Beard Bros.

I’ve met 8-Bit Eric.

I’ve met Boogie2988.

I’ve met Gaijin Goombah (awesome guy)

And several others that I can list another time.

I am really looking for ward to getting to go again this year (not set in stone yet, but still hopeful) the convention is in September so I still have time.

Anyway, I’ll see what I can do until then! I’m still reading and having the reviews coming!

Thanks for everyone supporting me. It means a lot to me.
